Nancy Goodfellow began her Yogic studies in the Ashtanga Vinyasa tradition under the guidance of her first teachers, Dominic Corigliano, Tim Miller and Pattabhi Jois. At a young age she felt drawn to go inwards seeking insight into life’s great questions. For two years she practiced and studied daily with great discipline and devotion alongside her teachers and mentors.
Following her dream of adventure and living a more simple life in deep connection with nature, she moved to Costa Rica and developed a strong self-practice, while continuing to study abroad with many international teachers of various traditions.

Her twenty years of committed practice, thousands of hours of trainings, and continual curiosity towards Life’s most mysterious aspects are all part of why she has so many devoted students.
